5 Lighting Trends You Can’t Ignore In 2018

The lighting you choose can change the entire atmosphere of a room. When you think of the most important factors in your interior design, you might think of a sofa, wall colour, carpeting, or drapery, but what you should really keep at the top of that list is lighting. 5 lighting trends you can’t ignore in 2018 are:

1. The starburst chandelier – The starburst chandelier takes the elegant and timeless feel of chandelier lighting, and flips it on its head, while still keeping all the sophistication. If you’re looking for ceiling lighting with a bit of edge, this is the trend you should be embracing straight away. A great example of a versatile and stand-out starburst chandelier is our Sunburst Gold Iron Pendant.

2. Energy saving bulbs – While this doesn’t have much to do with fixtures themselves, it does have to do with how your fixture will look and function. Energy efficient bulbs will keep your lighting fixtures, from chandeliers to table lamps, looking bright, beautiful, and comforting in your home. The style of your light fixture is going to be helped or hindered by the bulbs you choose, and today’s modern energy efficient bulbs will put them in their best light.

3. Industrial bathroom – For the last few years, industrial has been a kitchen staple, but for 2018 the rustic chic look is moving from the kitchen to the bathroom. Industrial lighting in the bathroom using metal tones and vintage styled bulbs gives an unexpected place in your home a touch of needed edge. If you want to take this look to a place that’s really unexpected, use an industrial pendant piece like our AfterPay eligible Coleman Brass Pendant over a sink with matching metallic tones.

4. Go with a “wow” – 2018 is very big on statement lighting, and getting that wow-factor out of a great unique piece. Chandeliers, table lamps, and floor lamps are more fantastic and whimsical than we’ve seen in recent years. To bring the drama into a large room, our Antler 9 Arm Chandelier in white is a statement piece that demands attention.

5. Clean lines – Clean lines will never go out of style, and if you want to bring something classic yet contemporary into your space using your lighting, this is the way to go. An example of the clean line look for your interior design is our Portia Crystal Pendant.
